Apple Silicon Line Up


I found myself a bit confused about the reviews of the newest Apple computers.

As Apple had released various upgrades from M1 to M2 the reviews in terms of computers of course had a lot of redundancy.

OTOH the machines themselves varied mainly in body and screen size.

Here is an overview of what’s on offer on the Apple website today

I named the chips Mx… because I think this will hold true through some iterations, and that the rest of the M1’s will eventually upgrade to the M2, perhaps when the M2’s will be replaced with M3’s.

In the future it will perhaps make sense to discuss the product offering by chip.
